Environmental Workshop for Teachers (SHRUB) Program at Headwaters Corner
Are you a 3rd through 8th grade LAUSD Teacher who wants to bring environmental stewardship to your students? Then this is the workshop for you!
Through a grant made possible by Southern California Gas Company, Mountains Restoration Trust (MRT), a non-profit organization that conserves, restores and preserves natural resources in the Santa Monica Mountains, offers a unique environmental education Workshop for Teachers. This free workshop interactively introduces “Students Helping Restore Unique Biomes” (SHRUB) to teachers. SHRUB is a program for 3rd through 8th grades which encourages students to steward the environment by restoring natural habitats. SHRUB provides an opportunity for students to give back to their community through service and allows students to learn about science in a real world setting. It also allows students to improve their public speaking skills and introduces students to new experiences and career opportunities in the new “green” economy.
The SHRUB Workshop will:
-> Show teachers first hand how the environmental education lessons of the SHRUB program, combined with its service-learning component, result in an education program that allows urban youth to make meaningful and lasting connections to the outdoors.
-> Prepare teachers to teach basic earth science, including local Mediterranean ecosystem features
-> Deliver classroom-based earth science education
-> Connect teachers with MRT and other environmental groups local to the schools in which they teach to plan hands on projects so that students get the pleasure of digging in the dirt to restore natural ecosystems in their own neighborhoods.
When: Saturday, October 5, 12, 19 or 26, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
